LEASING APPLICATION AND POLICIES

UNITED METRO PROPERTIES welcomes all applicants and supports Fair Housing. We do not refuse to lease any property nor do we discriminate against any person because of sex, marital status, race, creed, religion, age, familial status, physical or mental handicap, color or national origin.

In order to be considered for a property for lease:

For vacant properties: you must fully complete and sign our Lease Application on line at WWW.UNITEDMETRO.COM and submit to our office (or to a UMP leasing agent) a copy of your Driver's License or other pictured ID, paystubs for two pay periods and a Non-Refundable $35.00 Application Fee per person over the age of 18. Once you have been advised that you are approved, you must sign the lease and pay the full security deposit within 24 hours. Applicable sales tax and a $70.00 Processing Fee will be charged and collected with your move in funds.

For occupied properties: you must fully complete our Lease Application on line at WWW.UNITEDMETRO.COM and submit it to our office (or to a UMP leasing agent) a copy of your Driver's License or other pictured ID, paystubs for two pay periods and a Nonrefundable $35.00 Application Fee per person over the age of 18. Upon our receipt we will schedule an appointment for you with the current resident. If you approve the viewing, you must sign the lease and pay the full security deposit within 24 hours.

You must meet United Metro's approval of the following in order for your application to be considered. All applicants over the age of eighteen (18) must complete an application:

A. Income: You must have verifiable income in the amount of three times the monthly rent for a minimum of one year. Unrelated applicants must qualify on their own. Self-employed persons must submit income tax returns for the past two years. Retired persons or persons receiving Social Security Benefits must submit proof of income.

B. Credit: Credit will be checked and credit references will be contacted. Previous evictions, unpaid judgments and unpaid rents will not be accepted. Please note that applications with any open bankruptcies will NOT be accepted.

C. Rental History: Current and previous Landlords/Mortgage Holders will be contacted.

D. Occupancy: The number of occupants may not exceed two (2) persons per bedroom for the first two bedrooms, plus one (1) additional person for each additional bedroom. This shall include any child that resides at the home more than 50% of the time.

E. Pets: Policies on dogs vary according to each property owner and their insurance company's requirements. Depending on the breed, approval of this application may be conditioned upon the Applicant providing proof of coverage for the specific breed of dog via a Renter's Policy that names the Property Owner and Agent as added insured parties. Applicant must submit proof that any approved cat has been spayed or neutered at or prior to occupying the premises.

F. Tenant Liability Insurance: All Tenants are required to secure and provide proof of a Renter's Insurance Policy to be effective on the lease commencement date. If said proof is not received, the Tenant will automatically be enrolled in the United Metro Property Tenant Liability Insurance Program at a cost of $9.50 per month.

G. Criminal History Criteria: Applicants will be denied if they are registered sex offenders; have any outstanding warrants or have been arrested for a crime that is awaiting trial. Applicants must have no felony convictions less than ten (10) years old that involve violent crimes against persons or property, including but not limited to murder, arson, kidnapping, assault, bomb related offenses, robbery or burglary, terrorism OR that involve the manufacturing or distribution of drugs in any manner. All other felony convictions must be more than five (5) years old.

Convictions of any drug related offenses involving possession only, or alcohol related offenses where no one was permanently injured or killed must be at least two (2) years old. Applicants must have successfully completed any felony sentence at least two (2) years ago and have no new criminal activity for at least two (2) years.

If an Applicant would like us to review additional information regarding a felony conviction or a current arrest or warrant, the Applicant is permitted to submit that information along with their application and we will review it on a case by case basis.

All applications are accepted on a “first come first served basis”. Every attempt will be made to process your Application within 48 hours of receipt. United Metro shall have the right to reject incomplete or falsified applications or applications without all names, phone numbers and addresses necessary for verification purposes.

If the property you are applying for is located within a Homeowners Association, you will be expected to abide by the CC&R's and Community Rules and Regulations of said association. You can obtain a copy of this document at the United Metro office. A sample of our standard lease agreement is available for your review on line at www.unitedmetro.com.

You will be required to pay the first month's rent on or before the move in date, unless a special is being offered. This must be paid by money order or cashier's check — personal checks will not be accepted.

The Applicant(s) acknowledges that he/she has read, understands and agrees to the above policies and agrees that:

In consideration of United Metro holding the property for me, I agree to pay a Non-refundable $35.00 Application Fee, per person over the age of 18, for processing my application.

Within 48 hours of notification of my approval, I must:

1. Execute United Metro's Lease Agreement and associated addendums.

2. Pay any additional security deposits.

If I do not conform to both above items, I understand and agree that United Metro shall no longer be obligated to hold this property for me, and I agree to forfeit my security deposit.

I understand that I must provide United Metro Properties proof of Renters Insurance, covering my personal belongings, on or before my lease commencement date in order to avoid being charged $9.50 plus tax monthly for a liability only insurance policy.

I understand that if I request a change to my lease commencement date after the lease has been drafted, I agree to pay a $75.00 Lease Revision Fee.

I further understand that United Metro Properties, Inc. and their employees are exclusive agents of, and represent, the Property Owner; and that the lease will be between the applicant(s) and United Metro Properties, as Agent for the Owner; and that any suit I may file in the future regarding the lease agreement shall be in the name of the property owner.
